Give the Gift of: Big White
It’s our favourite time of year here at Big White Ski Resort – if you don’t believe us, read our blog on just how much we love Christmas – and there’s nothing we like more than to share this magical season with our guests and their loved ones. That’s why we’ve put together a list of gifts the resort has to offer to help make your Christmas shopping a bit simpler – all easily purchased with one of our gift cards.
At Big White, we believe that gift cards don’t have to be for the impossible-to-shop-for people in your life. We think gift cards can be a gateway to once-in-a-lifetime experiences; to children saying let’s do that again, and again, and again; to that home-away-from-home feeling that makes a vacation go from good to spectacular; to the remember whens?; and finally, to those Insta-perfects moments that’ll be thrown back to Thursday after Thursday.
Give the gift of: Once in a lifetime
There’s nothing quite like first tracks on a Big White Pow Day, and our Biggie Cards come with the first day already loaded, meaning the hardcore skiers or boarders in your life can skip the ticket line and head straight to the lift. Plus, adults save up to $35 on the first day, and $55 on additional days during peak season by using a Biggie Card. It’s about as close as you can get to physically wrapping up some of that world-famous Okanagan Champagne Powder and putting it under the tree.
As for the newbies – our Ski and Board School offers private and group lessons for every level, every day of the week. Give lessons now and your loved one’s muscles will remember it forever. It won’t be long before they’ll be as eager for first tracks as one of the old pros.
Give the gift of: Let’s do that again!
One lap down the lanes at our Tube Park will never be enough. Open during the week from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, and on weekends from 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm, the Tube Park is the perfect way to keep enjoying the snow well after the lifts stop spinning.
Or, gift the exhilaration of making it to the top of our 60-foot Ice Climbing Tower. With four different ways to reach the top, from beginner to advanced, this is a feat that can be accomplished by anybody.
Give the gift of: Home away from home
Cozy. Familiar. Welcoming. One of our goals at Big White is to recreate the warm feeling we all experience in the comfort of our own homes – with the added luxury of being on holiday.
Think: private hot tub. Think: hot stone massage at Elevation Spa. Think: steak cooked just right at Kettle Valley Steakhouse. Think: pint of craft beer while sitting around The Woods’ outdoor fire pit.
Give the gift of: Remember when?
Nothing signals winter more than the annual appearance of our classic Big White toques. Available on the mountain and at our office in Kelowna, in every size, including kids’, and in nearly every colour imaginable, it’s easy to find the perfect fit – and one that will remind your loved ones year after year of their time at Canada’s Favourite Family Resort.
They can add a Big White Christmas ornament to their collection, or place their family photo in one of our Big White frames – both available at Mountainside, downstairs in the Village Centre Mall.
Or maybe the lift ticket is enough – enough to remember the times they spent in the chairlift with their kids, or with their girlfriend, or with their new buddy from New Zealand who pops up on their Facebook feed every once and a while. Remember the snow? Remember the sunset? Remember how deliciously heartwarming that free hot chocolate was standing around the bonfire after a long day on the slopes?
Give the gift of: #ThrowbackThursday, again, and again, and again
If our world-renowned snow ghosts aren’t enough, picture someone you love in front of those snow ghosts, and picture them wearing the latest in name-brand gear from one of our retail shops on the mountain.
Now picture that same person with a team of dogs ripping through Big White’s beautiful backcountry. Picture them sipping wine on a horse-drawn sleigh ride through Happy Valley. Picture them sitting in a hot tub with our weekly fireworks as the backdrop.
Picture them Christmas morning with a Big White gift card.
